It took seven years. Received decision from the Veterans’ Board of Appeals last Friday. Granted for thyroid cancer and ionizing radiation. You guys said it could not be done.

Congratulations.  Looks like persistence wins the day.  I hope it helps your health situation. You have helped not only yourself but other veteran's who have found themselves in similar circumstances.

I wish more help had been available for Paul Perris (PEP).  But, I am thankful for your contribution to fellow veteran's in need of help from the VA.  Again, congratulations and the best of health to you.
